The nominations are in and Discovery Park tenant, luxury villa rental company Top Villas, is once again in the running for the hotly-contested British Travel Awards. Winning an award is the most sought after accolade within the travel industry and this year Top Villas is going for gold.
The Kent-based company has already scooped several awards in the Best Large Villa Category; last year the Top Villas team took home the silver trophy, the year before that they got the bronze and this year they’re keeping their eyes on the top prize – gold.
The ‘Oscars’ of the travel industry, the British Travel Awards is the largest consumer-voted awards programme in the UK, created to reward the very best travel companies. The awards are decided by the all-important travelling public and will be celebrated later this year with a glitzy gala in London.
What’s more, voters could be winning too. All votes are automatically entered into a very generous prize draw where up-for-grabs goodies range from all-inclusive holidays, to luxury stays, flights, holiday vouchers and much more.
Top Villas is based at Discovery Park in Sandwich, the former Pfizer site turned business park. The company has around 30 staff in the UK, but demand for its holiday homes is now so high that it moved to a larger office at the site, and has also opened a second office in Orlando.
Headed by entrepreneurial brothers Tom and James Mannings, the holiday-homes business was born in 2010 with just a few villas on its books. Today it rents out a worldwide portfolio of 4,000+ family friendly properties in popular holiday destinations such as Orlando, Thailand, Europe and the Caribbean.
Co-founder James Mannings, 33, said: “We’re as proud as ever to to have been nominated again and we’d be delighted to win gold.
“As past winners we’d like say a big thank you to our loyal customers and the general public for voting for us year after year and recognising us as one of the best luxury villa rental companies.
“We strive to provide our customers with exceptional service every step of the way and it’s always a pleasure to know that what we do is appreciated, both by our guests and within the travel industry. We took home the silver trophy last year but this year we’re going for gold!”
British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “The British Travel Awards is the largest consumer voted awards program in the world and last year more than 350,000 votes were cast by the travelling public to determine the winners.
“To win an award is truly an accolade and badge of excellence.”
